My self-summary
UPDATE TIME...again. I've been working at an internship for the better part of a year, and am looking for that second job. I've got several projects that get in the way, but I do very well with evals, so I'm hopeful. I know talking about work is boring, but, so am I, I guess. I spend most of my time on my computer, working learning, or taking a break from those. The rest of my free time is spent in the kitchen.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm in transition; have been for a while now. I'm always looking for new things to do, new people to meet, new things to cook, new places to go. For the time being, these seem to be mixing fancy cocktails, whomever, French and Chinese food, and New Orleans, maybe. Work, obligations, and staying in shape tend to get in the way a bit too frequently, as does the occasional video game, but I manage.
I’m really good at
Cooking, and making people laugh at me. And those are SEPARATE talents. :) Not much else comes to mind, at least that's worth mentioning, but I'm looking to expand this list.
The first things people usually notice about me
"Hey, there's a person there."
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
books: Hamlet, Wuthering Heights, The Woman Warrior, Catch-22, Fahrenheit 451. Also, it's been a long time since I read regularly.

movies: Ghostbusters, Shoot 'Em Up, Zombieland, The Dark Knight, Rushmore. Again, movies aren't really a common pastime of mine. I prefer social activities where conversation is encouraged.

shows: not much for live shows, but Hot Chip was a friggin'blast, Sleigh Bells were hot, and though I haven't yet, I'm at the point where I'd sell a kidney to see Passion Pit

Ooooohh. TV shows: I don't watch TV.

music: Grizzly Bear, Broken Social Scene, The Arcade Fire, Monsters of Folk, Julian Casablancas, The Doors, Vampire Weekend, Tokyo Police Club, The Thermals, Florence and the Machine, Beck, The Decembrists, the New Pornographers, Camera Obscura, Sharon Jones, Sleigh Bells, Passion Pit, The Violent Femmes, Fang Island, White Rabbits, !!! are at the top of my list right now. I mostly love pop, particularly indy rock as far as current music goes. This list is now two years old, but I haven't really been keeping up with bands, lately, so it can stand.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Programming, friends, where I'll be in 2 years, and politics. Try not to talk too much about that last topic; it's usually uncomfortable.
On a typical Friday night I am
Working at a bar or friend's place. I'm always working, but also know that I need to at least get out and be around people, on occasion.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Not here. I am quite an open person, though, so ask me whatever you would like to.
You should message me if
you'd like to meet new people, or chat, and definitely, if you'd like to come to a dinner party, sometime. I mostly use this site as a distraction from work, these days, though I do check my messages daily, and always respond.
